Satan Is The Accuser Of Our Brethren
By David J. Stewart | December 2015
Revelation 12:10, “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.”
The Bible teaches in our text verse above that the Devil is “THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHREN.” Notice that Satan does not accuse the sinful world. Nor does he accuse haters of God. Satan does not accuse Christ-rejecters and blasphemers. Satan does not accuse humanists, witches, liberals, false prophets and modernists. The Devil does not accuse the kooks, quacks and queers. No, Satan accuses Christians, that is, if you are born-again, “OUR BRETHREN.”
When unsaved people accuse OTHERS, they are behaving just like their father, the Devil. Satan is “THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHREN” according to Revelation 12:10. Satan does not accuse ungodly reprobates who are the enemies of God; but rather, he constantly makes allegations against God's children 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, pointing out their sins, faults and weaknesses in an attempt to bring reproach upon the Church. And God forbid when God's children behave like the Devil's children, by condemning each other. We are all sinners! We are all hypocrites to some degree. None of us has a right nor qualification to throw rocks at anyone, for we have all horribly sinned in God's sight.
The Sin Of Categorizing Sin; Or, The Sin Of Being A Respecter Of Persons
People have a horrible tendency to categorize sins, esteeming certain sins as being more horrible, punishable and shameful than others; but, all sin is awful, reproachable and punishable in God's eyes. In fact, telling even one lie is deserving of spending eternity in the Lake of Fire. It doesn't matter what you or I think, but what God thinks. God's opinion is the only opinion that matters. The Bible says in Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.” One of the most horrible sins a person can commit is condemning OTHERS who have sinned.
We read in Revelation 21:8b that “all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” Even on sin is enough to keep a man out of Heaven. How many lies would a person have to tell to be a liar? The answer is just ONE lie! Everyone is a sinner by nature and by choice. It is in our human nature to do evil. Genesis 8:21, “And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.”
This is why young people desperately need to be taught the Word of God in their daily curriculum at school, instead of the satanic lies of Evolution and Humanism. It is Luciferians who've had the Word of God removed from America's classrooms since 1963. And now, tragically, Luciferians have removed the Holy Bible from America's churches by flooding the churches with satanic counterfeit Bible versions, which water-down the truth and render the Bible ineffective by removing its authoritative tone. Beware of all modern Bible versions, which have all been translated from the corrupted Greek manuscripts of Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort from Alexandria, Egypt!!!
An Evil, Devilish and Hypocritical Generation Of Accusers Against The Righteous
To condemn Independent Fundamentalist Baptist preachers while giving a free pass to Rock 'N' Roll guitarists and singers, is to sinfully be a respecter of persons. Just to show you what rotten hypocrites Dr. Hyle's critics really are, read what Wikipedia.org has to say about Dr. Jack Hyles, horribly portraying him as the Devil. Then read what Wikipedia.org has to say about bums like Van Halen singer, David Lee Roth. Or how about Neal Schon of the Rock band Journey. Mr. Schon married his fourth wife Ava Fabian in 2011 and then left her 2-months later, running off in adultery with Michaele Salahi (his 5th wife). I'm not condemning Neal, but Wikipedia doesn't mention a word (not one word) of criticism about the legendary guitarist's adulterous behavior, dumping his 4th wife without warning, and breaking her heart. Miss Fabian has publicly expressed her devastation of the abandonment and betrayal.
The beautiful man, Brother Jack Hyles, gave away nearly everything that he owned to OTHERS, led millions of people to the Lord (directly and indirectly through his 55-years of faithful ministry), and so much more. You'll never read on Wikipedia that Dr. Jack Hyles bought a set of teeth for a poor woman, paid the rent of numerous widows, paid the school tuition for dozens of young people, regularly helped the poor, ran a Skidrow rescue mission to help homeless men (oftentimes buying some of them a suit), operated women's shelters, helped restore thousands of marriages, trained and sent hundreds of missionaries on foreign soil to minister to forgotten peoples, helped thousands of churches, and was a precious blessing to millions of people in his generation and still today.
Wikipedia.org is allegedly authored by the American public. I've edited the content on Wikipedia numerous times concerning Brother Hyles, bragging on Dr. Hyles goodness, and telling people of the many wonderful things that Pastor Hyles did for OTHERS throughout his lifetime. After dozens of hours of editing, some evil person(s) keeps removing all my content and putting all the evil lies, distortions, exaggerations and slander back, and there's nothing I can do about it, because Wikipedia is operated by evil men who cater to the Luciferian Illuminati (who clearly control Google, YouTube, Facebook (Nosebook), Twitter and other major social networking websites, promoting evil smut and slander, but censoring good).
Look for yourself online concerning Journey's guitarist Neal Schon and ask yourself why no one criticizes him for the cruel abandonment of his 4th wife. He just walked away and left his lawful wife for someone he liked better. What if Brother Hyles had done that? All the hordes of Hell would have condemned him! But when you're the Devil's child, he leaves you alone. Why don't the critics roast Mr. Schon over the coals of criticism with the same hatred and scrutiny that they apply to Pastor Jack Hyles, and other faithful preachers who tell the truth like it is? Do you know why people are such hypocrites? It is because they are respecters of persons!
The Savage Public Attack Against Andrew Jackson's Wife's Character
People can be so cruel. Mistreatment, malicious criticism and slander of moral character are nothing new to our wicked generation. Ungodly people do it in an attempt to discredit and destroy their enemies. Andrew Jackson (1767-1845) was a general during the Civil War. In 1928 Mr. Jackson campaigned for the office of U.S. president. Jackson's enemies stooped lower-than-low, attacking his wife's moral integrity, portraying her publicly as an adulterous whore...
“The story is really convoluted because when Jackson ran for president in 1828, (his allies) were trying to kind of clean up the story a little bit and make it more acceptable for the morals of 1828, which were a little bit different than they had been in 1788," Mullin said. Jackson's detractors "latched onto this story about Rachel being another man's wife and Jackson stealing her from him, and it just became a huge part of the campaign.”
The Jackson team's efforts at spin control did little to halt the media assault against his wife. ...
“To her shock, she found descriptions of herself as a Jezebel, an adulteress, a bigamist, rehashing all the horror of her marriage to Lewis Robards and her flight with Andrew Jackson,” Toplovich wrote in her article, “Marriage, Mayhem, and Presidential Politics: The Robards-Jackson Backcountry Scandal.”
'A being so gentle'
Distraught, Rachel Jackson fled Nashville in tears, stopping at a creek to wash them away, an action that appears to have triggered a dangerous cold, according to Toplovich. Here, again, the facts are murky. Adds Mullin: "She came down very suddenly with some kind of heart problem. It's very hard to diagnose as to whether it was congestive heart failure of some kind or an actual heart attack."
SOURCE: How Jackson Tried To Save His Wife's Honor
It appears that Andrew Jackson was a born-again Christian, and a member of the Presbyterian denomination (which was decent back then, but not today, having embraced the homosexual agenda). Jackson's enemies were of the Devil, attacking his wife's honor in an attempt to destroy his chance at securing the U.S. Presidency. Ungodly people will do anything to satisfy their lusts, whims, ambitions and the chance for power and money. This is not the Christian way. History is filled with accounts of professed Christians killing, torturing, raping and committing all manner of evil in the Lord's name; but God was not complicit to such wickedness. James 1:13, “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.”
My friend, if the Devil's crowd attacked our holy Savior, calling him crazy (John 10:20), demon possessed (John 7:20), a bastard (John 8:41), and a deceiver (Matthew 27:63), then you can be assured that they will also degrade and defame us as Christians two millenniums later. Jesus said in John 7:7, “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” If you are a genuine born-again Christian, and you take a Biblical stand for righteousness and against sin, the Devil's crowd will persecute, despise, heckle and hurt you. 2nd Timothy 3:12, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” I've been persecuted all my life for my Christian faith. Of course, most people who harass you won't admit that they are doing it because of your faith; but rather, they make up other excuses and reasons for giving you a hard time, persecuting and harassing you. This happens often in the secular workplace. Oh how the world needs Jesus Christ!
God Laughs At The Critics Of Christians, For He Seeth Their Day Of Reckoning Coming
Proverbs 16:27 , “An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire.”
The Bible warns that we will all be judged in eternity according to our own standards. We will be judged according to how we treated and judged OTHERS. A lot of people hate and hurt Christians, and their day of reckoning is coming. Psalms 37:12-13, “The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.” All of the hypocrites who are casting stones of hateful criticism against fundamental Bible-preachers today (all of whom have been less-than-perfect sinners just like everyone else), will face the harsh and merciless judgment of God in retaliation for their own merciless judgment of God's children. If you condemn the righteous, but justify the wicked, you have condemned yourself by your own hypocrisy! There is much criticism on the internet against Christian believers, especially against fundamentalist preachers of the Word of God.
James 4:12, “There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?” I condemn no man. I am the biggest sinner that I know (and so are you, in your own eyes, if you're right with God). If it weren't for God's wondrous and abundant grace, I'd spend eternity in the Lake of Fire. Thank God the Father for the precious gift of Jesus, His only begotten Son, Who bled and died on the cross for my sins, was buried, and raised-up the third day from the dead as my heavenly High Priest (Romans 8:34; Hebrews 4:15-16)! What a Savior!!!
One of my favorite Scripture passages is from Romans 2:1-3, “Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?” Everyone is a woeful sinner. Don't judge others because they sin differently than you do. There is a hateful spirit of pride, arrogance and self-righteousness that is prevalent in cyberspace, condemning the righteous for any and every sin, mistake and word that comes out of their mouth. God will TORTURE the wicked. Psalms 50:22, “Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.”
God hates when a person sows seeds of discord amongst brethren. If you criticize OTHERS, you had better make sure that you know what you're doing. Bible-preaching against open sin and evil is proper, but condemning OTHERS on a personal level is not! It is incredibly evil how newspapers destroy people's career, life and reputation. The media ought to be held accountable for the damage they cause to make filthy money. Bad news sells, good news doesn't. The newsmedia eat their own young! The United States is a throw-away society. In the old days, people fixed things that were broken, they didn't throw them away. Albeit, things have drastically changes over the past 75 years. People don't try to fix anything anymore, they just throw stuff away. People don't try to fix their broken marriage anymore, they just quit and move on to the next. We hear a lot these days about “RELATIONSHIPS,” which is just another way of saying FORNICATION!!! This is what Jesus meant when He foretold in Matthew 24:37-39 about the End Times, in which people would return to the times of Noah, when people lived to eat, drink and marry (divorce and remarry again and again).
Matthew 7:1-3, “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?” People tend to look the other way for their secular ungodly heroes (like Neal Schon and David Lee Roth), but condemn righteous preachers who proclaim the Word of God to this crooked generation. The New York Post reported in 2007 that David Lee Roth of Van Halen invented the McDonald's drive-thru of fornication backstage after Rock concerts. Yet, not a word of this evil debauchery is mentioned on Wikipedia.org about Mr. Roth. Why do people justify the wicked, but utterly condemn the righteous, gnashing upon the righteous with their teeth? It reveals the desperate evil of the human heart, evidencing the truth from Genesis 8:21b that, “the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth.”
Don't judge OTHERS because they sin differently than you do!!! You are a filthy, rotten, dirty sinner just like the contemptible person you esteem as being vile, loathsome and deserving of horrible punishment. LOOK IN THE MIRROR MY FRIEND! James 2:9-10, “But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.”
Gossip is one of the most destructive, wicked and ignored of sins. What may seem like a cheap form of entertainment to you, destroys another person's life, reputation and happiness. The internet is plagued with ungodly hypocrites who condemn fundamentalist preachers for anything and everything (much of which is untrue or highly exaggerated). A rumor that begins as holding hands with the opposite sex often turns into rape by the time gossip has made its trips around the malicious internet world. If scorners cannot discover some sin, or some hurtful information to discredit a fundamentalist Bible-preacher's reputation and ministry, then they'll resort to reckless allegations, unfounded rumors and some slander that came from a friend of a friend of a friend. James 4:12, “There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?”
Oftentimes local newspapers will print mere speculation about a preacher, which then becomes a citable source (even though the information may be completely or partially false). This is how Wikipedia disgustingly works. As long as you have a citable source, you can spew all manner of slander, lies and evil garbage about a public figure, preacher or reputable name or institution. I'm glad that the Holy Bible promises and warns that God will hold all men accountable for their words (Matthew 12:36), works (Ecclesiastes 12:14), and even their very thoughts and motives (Proverbs 24:12). No one is going to get away with anything.
Taking A Stand Against Apostasy In The Churches Is Right And Necessary
Please don't misunderstand the difference between exposing apostasy in the churches today verses condemning individuals for their sins and mistakes. Many scum-bucket Neo-Evangelicals resort to cheap-shot attacks against the individual character of fundamentalist preachers, in a shameful and sinful attempt to discredit the faithful Bible-preachers who expose them. This is why Neo-Evangelicals despise Pastor Jack Hyles so much. I had a woefully ignorant associate pastor, a Bob Jones University graduate, get upset with me for telling him that the New International Version (NIV) is a satanic counterfeit of the Bible. He replied by calling Dr. Jack Hyles “a cult.” No that Bob Jones graduate is an idiot! If you think Dr. Hyles is a cult, you've got a serious spiritual problem.
Here's the truth...
2nd Timothy 4:3, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.”
Dr. Hyles preached THE TRUTH, and he was hated for it. Brother Hyles was also a strong leader, which made many little men jealous of his greatness in the Lord. Moses ran into the same type of troublemakers and critics in his day. Numbers 26:9, “And the sons of Eliab; Nemuel, and Dathan, and Abiram. This is that Dathan and Abiram, which were famous in the congregation, who strove against Moses and against Aaron in the company of Korah, when they strove against the LORD.” Dr. Hyles stood for the truth of God's Word, the bus ministry, Biblical separation, youth taking a stand for God, the King James Bible, the literal blood of Jesus sprinkled upon the Mercy Seat in Heaven, the local New Testament church, and reaching out with the Gospel to the unwanted and poor.
Critics who've never built a hotdog stand spew hatred for Dr. Hyles, desperately looking for anything they can find to support their unjust attack against First Baptist Church of Hammond and Dr. Hyles. People act like Brother Hyles was supposed to be sinless. No one is without fault. Yet, the allegations against Brother Hyles are without evidence, and it is wrong to believe or circulate unfounded rumors, regardless of who starts them. Most of the allegations are outright laughable. Anyone who accuses Dr. Hyles of loving money is woefully off base. Dr. Hyles gave away nearly everything that he owned. I think a lot of people judge Brother Hyles based upon what they would do in a given situation, letting their imagination run wild, and not for what is actually true. So people start jumping to erroneous and bizarre conclusions, saying the most rotten and untrue garbage in online forums. Woe unto the wicked! It is unjust to believe and give credibility to rumors. Don't believe anything you read, and only half of what you see.
Satan Accuses God's Children, Not His Own Unsaved Children
In 1947 Cowboy singer Gene Autry penned the goofy song, “HERE COMES SANTA CLAUS,” in which he foolishly claims that “WE'RE ALL GOD'S CHILDREN.” No Sir, that is heresy, everyone is either a child of the Devil, or a born-again child of God. It's one or the other, there is no middle ground. It's Heaven or Hell. Satan only accuses the righteous to their heavenly Father. Literally, Satan and God are two fathers comparing their children to one another. We see this truth evidenced in Job chapter one. God bragged on His child Job, while Satan sought for occasion to accuse him. What does the Devil say about you in your heavenly Father's presence?
Or is Satan your father, and you are not a true child of God? I know that I am a child of God, by faith in the Gospel, having received God's imputed righteousness over 35 years ago as a teenager. I have no goodness to offer God (Isaiah 64:6). My only hope for Heaven is Christ's death on the cross for my sins, His burial and bodily resurrection three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). My sins have been washed away by the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ (1st John 1:7).
Please notice in the following Bible passage that Satan is foretold as DECEIVING THE WHOLE WORLD!!! Revelation 12:9-13, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.”
In the preceding Scripture passage we learn that Satan is going to be banned from entering Heaven (as we read he did in Job chapter one). Consequently, the brethren-criticizing Devil will come down to the earth HAVING GREAT WRATH, because he knows that his TIME IS SHORT. This refers to the 7-year Tribulation Period, when Israel will be greatly trodden down by the Gentiles. Present-day Israel is NOT the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy, because although many unsaved Jews have returned to the land, they have not returned to the Lord as Hosea 3:4-5 foretells at Christ's Second Coming AFTER the Tribulation. The Rapture (catching away) of the saints will happen BEFORE the Tribulation. END
“Too many people let the failures of yesterday and the fears of tomorrow rob them of the joy of serving God today!”
